it in a safer, cleaner way than they are, but the obama administration put the just say no to coal. that cuts out half of the present source of electrical power in the country. tell me how a country can grow, a country that grows and a country that needs more energy. you tell me how this country can have hybrid vehicles that are pugged into the wall if we don't provide more electricity. i mean, this is like living in some kind of fantasy land. this great wonderful hybrid vehicles have got to get pluggedded into the wall. if we had hybrid vehicles driving around the country, we need 35% more electricity. well, we're on a -- we are on a path to less electricity, not more. 50% is gone. that's going to keep going down because we put a stop on coal. okay, where else do we get electricity from? well, we get it from nuclear power. nuclear, we have 104 nuclear power plants. they supply anywhere from 20%-25% of the electricity. in my city, it's 25%. nuclear power, we have not licensed a nuclear power plant other than one in the last 30 years. the others are getting real old, and there's no appetite on
adminisation and the same exact words we td toe byhe geithner people under the obama administration. but it was a remarkable thing to hear. because who could really believe that other than people who had come from these institutions. and my response, of course, is "where have you been for the last couple of years? what rock have you been under, that you haven't seen that these guys would sell their soul for a few basis points of profit?" that ideas like they wouldn't risk their reputations or wouldn't embarrass themselves again, as bill dudley, the president of the new york fed said me en iomplned about relying too heavily on credit-rating agencies. this was the core ideology and approach of how they viewed the financial crisis. it wasn't the bank's fault. and if we could just trust them, we'll be in a good place again. >> and yet, there haven't been prosecutions have there, of these -- the people culpable for this crash? >> no, i mean, what our office did was to detect, prosecute, investigate, and refer for prosecution those who tried to steal from the program. so we were blocked
klein, author of the new york times best-seller, the amateur, all about the obama administration. good to see you. let's start with, first, the sound that we just shared with our audience. bill clinton not really performing up to bill clinton standards. he was mocking governor romney, talking about, well, i don't know about other folks, but in arkansas we would have liked president obama to have had the power to turn back the seas yesterday. i mean, it did not make a lick of sense. >> with obama himself, we have in this campaign, turned the tide back, he'll the planet, brought everybody together. it was he that made these averages comments. lou: as a candidate, as i recall. rummy mocked him in the republican national convention. there was nothing, you know, current about what he was being quoted as saying by president clinton. a contemporaneously. it was a silly, silly remark. >> it did not make any sense. a freer talking about sarcasm, who has been the most sarcastic in this whole campaign? it has been barack obama. i think he is taking a lesson from michele, his wife. super sarcastic
before the obama administration, and we are so focused the present -- we did a conference at the old center i think for a five years ago on this very topic of secrecy. and i went through the transcript last night, and now that i've listened to did i want to say, we think we're having the same old conversation but we are not. we are not really looking towards solutions and remedies, and where we stand in terms of the interests of these between long and policy actually. so what do you know it or not we have actually come some distance, which is what the next that is going to talk about. so get some coffee, get some cookies and come back. thank you. [applause] >> [inaudible conversations] >> wednesday from the british house of commons, prime minister's question time. because of daylight savings time in the uk, this week prime minister's questions will air at eight am eastern instead of its usual 7 a.m. you can see it live here on c-span2. now more from the fordham law school conference. next, we hear from former cia acting general counsel john rizzo, and former justice department inspec
on jobs, did the obama administration try something similar to your jobs for all program with a seamless package? how do you compare the two? rozum: no, because the stimulus was not meant to be a permanent public jobs program and the cost of those jobs were skyhigh. it cost almost $800 billion, yet another jobs created or saved for only 3 million. the numbers we're talking are similar, 800 million, 800 billion, excuse me but to greet over 10 million jobs. and so direct public employment is a little different than giving tax breaks to companies, to create jobs. because the job creators aren't getting it done. they are not creating jobs. >> moderator: dan the thick, a follow up on jobs. you think under a second obama administration, should you return to washington could you create a more favorable tax environment for businesses or hospitals to grow so that could be more jobs? maffei: there's no question tax reform would be very, very important and if you think we need to lower rates but get rid of a lot of loopholes, particularly corporate loopholes, the ones that ship jobs overseas. cease
of this whole process of the editorial board that four more years of an obama administration would change any of that, and particularly momentum on the economic front was just something that this board couldn't see. >> cenk: all right now everybody is here, ana kasparian, michael shure, jayar jackson, they join us for this conversation. as i listen to that i think that's one of the dumbest things i ever heard. now we have partisan gridlocks let's make sure that we award the republicans because they won't work with the democrats let's just award the republicans. >> you be are saying there is a partisan gridlock and then you want to give the guy that will give them what they want. i don't care what they're endorsing. i feel like as a newspaper you should not be endorsing anybody. i don't care in it's the editorial board i'm not interested in that. >> cenk: we discussed that earlier in the day. we know that newspapers have been endorsing candidates for a long time. why do they do that? >> generally the history of the newspaper endorsement was about the best chance for good change in that localit
from the treasury in terms of what to do next with the g.s.e.'s and an obama administration would follow something along those lines after dealing with the fiscal question. tax reform and all the other issues. what about a romney administration? what sorts of promises, if any, have been articulated? >> scott, let me make it clear say there had ot been a proposal by the administration. they produced a long awaited white paper in january of 2011, which laid out three options. those options were a private solution, a government solution, or a hybrid solution. i'm not being very facetious here in saying that. so, we haven't will a proposal from either side. a proposal from either side. a proposal from either sidfrom either side. a proposal from either side.h a proposal from a a proposal from either side.d a proposal from either side. i would expect that a democratic would see some of the good things that the provided.ave three go back to my opening charts about how the mortgage market has changed because of that, and would want to keep something like them around. and i think that the
of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-traffic controller system. there are some things -- look at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. da
, but the way the obama administration has chosen to put official after official in front of the public, whether it's john brennan or harold koh. >> and say what? >> right. but i think you have to first get out there. time consuming, but i'm just saying. >> there are things that we cannot tell you about, celesta you and loose terms. let's make sure you are aware there are things we can't tell you about. >> right. and the other thing we have not done to is the distinction between talking about procedural issues rather than substantive issues. but get out there and talk to you about sensitive issues in our context, this being the administration, but what the public really wants to know, and this is one of was trying to get up before, what are the procedural issues? how you decide you're going to have the started killings against. how you decide who is your enemy? >> into is deciding this? >> that's what i mean. how do you decide to make and sell when you ask the question what is it the public wants to know, one of the things they want to know is what is the process by which this is happening. mayb
many ways as a result of actions taken by the obama administration. >> that goes into the whole debate over this auto bailout, and as we made the point about three or four years ago right after the auto bailout, gm goes and so goes the obama presidency and so goes the election. this campaign with so much attention focused on ohio, one in eight jobs are related somehow to the auto industry there. you see the romney campaign try to make a move and correct things. the question is whether it's too late and whether they're being hit very hard on this current attack that they've had on that jeep ad. >> thank you so much. greatly appreciate you coming on. we'll see what happens there. thank you, mark. massachusetts senator scott brown and elizabeth warren canceled their final debate for tonight as a result of hurricane sandy. in statements both candidates said going forward with the fourth debate would be, quote, inappropriate. it's after a new boston globe poll shows the race tied with brown slightly leading warren 45-43. you know there's a university poll out saying warren is up around 7 po
that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that it would be energy and social issues, women's access to health care being chief among them. host: curtis hubbard, thank you so much for your time this morning. guest: thanks for having me. host: our look cut this topic will continue with the republican strategist john turner and then later with. >> as we approach the election day, c-span is asking middle and high school students to send a message to the president. in a short video students what i ask the question was the most important issue the president is facing in 2013. the studentcam video competition is open to kids aged 6-12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. find out more at studentcam.org. >> these are the stories that your textbooks left out. they are great stories in american history. the first program came up to 50 sale. before the mayflower sel there were french. they made wine. they h
. lastly, will it disrupt early voting? which is what the obama administration wanted? states like virginia or ohio? there is no storms in northeastern ohio, democratic country, as was indicated earlier, virginia, it hitsteamic area and republican arizona. it's probably a washington. it will be a three-day hiatus out of the political counter and will resume in week where we were in the beginning of the week. >> what about the romney evideneffort and how it transpid today? holding this evident to raise both funds and food stuff, and kind of, you know, talk about giving and how that played today? >> what else do you do? >> bret: right. >> a moment fraught with peril for the challenger particularly. you don't want to be accused and the press is a hair trigger when it comes to accusing romney of misusing the moment. >> bret: then he did today. >> of course, but you don't want to be accused. that is fair or unfair. >> every day i wake up for two weeks and say maybe it's frozen in stone. maybe the race is already decided. i don't know the outcome but the people who don't know who they are going t
it to a flash mob, so here's the question. who in the obama administration asked general petraeus to go out and change the story? my next guest is demanding, rightly so, to know the answer. his son, ty woods, is one of the four americans killed in the benghazi attack. his son was a navy seal. joining us is charles woods with his children, jeremiah, faith, and hope. thank you all for being here. i am so sorry your son turned out to be one of the -- this is one of the most heroic stories i've ever heard in my life. he was told -- he was a mile away at the cia, a mile away from the consulate. he heard the cries for help, was told to stand down twice, and he went anyway. >> you know. it does not surprise me at all that my son would disobey direct orders from the white house to stand down and not to help. he's trained as a navy seal, never to leave anybody behind, so it does not surprise me one bit that he would jeopardize his military career as well as his life to help save the lives of other americans. >> sean: you shared with me an e-mail you got from one of the people your son saved. >> okay
for the kingman. >> it's about foreign policy. the obama: administration now says terrorists were behind the murder of u.s. ambassador in libya, christopher stevens, should the u.s. have known more about what was going on in libarch better security for our people? what more do you think needs to be done to fight terrorism? >> look, karen, i have taken a classified brief so i cannot go into extensive details here but it's already apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should have been done. what's important right now is we mourn the losses of the families, that we learn what happened. that we don't rush to judgment. we figure out -- we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those that did this. then it's important that we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i post military operations in libya last year. and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime in national security. i also think we need to think and act differently. absolutely we need the
, i question for jared. why did the obama administration it do more -- why did not the obama administration do more for poor communities given his work as a community organizer? some insight from your white house position. >> if you looked, and going to quote one of my colleagues, you can go on the web site of our institution, cbp.org you will find a number of papers but look at the impact on poverty of the stimulus, the recovery act. the recovery act lifted millions of people out of poverty. expanded the earned income tax credit. if you are not working, it did not help you. but a lot of people kept their jobs. the child tax credit was made refundable down to lower income levels. lifted a lot of people of poverty. the tax credit helped low-income workers, later the payroll tax credit helped. the expansion of unemployment insurance. critical. you heard, we will probably launch market poverty went up and 2011. on question only, if that is true, one of the reasons is because we pulled back some of the safety net in terms of extended unemployment insurance programs running out fo
the obama administration has reorganized fema and put a guy in charge of it who wasn't in charge of dancing horses. last night there were national guard troops all over the place, especially in jersey and they were deployed in both states and again, i think the real test of how this will be politicized begins now. it will be cleanup rescue efforts, getting the folks who are stands especially seniors, and that's how state and local governments will be judged. i think really they are going to try to politicize this either way. if it goes well the democrats will celebrate, and if it goes poorly, the republicans will try to smear it. i'm so proud of new york and jersey, and i just -- it's really amazing how people are just so tough in this part of the world, and manhattan is completely isolated from the rest of america, but what else is new? so we'll see what happens. >> john stay safe in manhattan, and thank for checking in. we'll probably check in with you next hour. >> i'll be around. thanks guys. >> all right. we'll be checking with charlie pierce as well. be
the obama administration took over this, their main objective was to keep costs high, at least to keep union costs high. >> that's the point with the pension. charles: and burdens general motors to this day which is why we're owed so much money and we're in trouble. >> what bothers me more about the fiasco, the fact that senior debt, and when ways with a in the business, make less debt, but have senior security and they ignored bankruptcy law. charles: and a lot of people, their rational, this would only hurt the fat cats and when we know this hurt a whole lot of people. >> what about the delphi investors who really lost on this one. let's take a look what they did in the gm bankruptcy, it's another case of sub bosub board nating one group. and board says, off shore earnings and makes sense they would not issue their earnings when the markets are closed. you would think they would wait until the market is open. does that mean that ford had, as you said, a good reason to issue them because they were so good. does that mean that people that are issuing them maybe are under what was estimated?
administration by the department of transportation in 2009 by president barack obama. he has over see the disbursement throughout the country through the american reinvestment act and has done so meeting every milestone established by that act. getting money into hands of transit operators whose budgets were severely strained by the worse economic downturn since our great depression. please welcome fta administrator peter rogof. [applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through p
. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anything from his committee. every time he makes a misstatement, he never comes back and tries to correct it to explain the coup methodology behind that? guest: biden not get that question. -- i did not get that question. host: he had concerns he was raising about the truth telling of that. guest: i think it is clear that the president has not been a firm with china. we have copyrights and trademarks being piloted with c
what is left of the boardwalk. brian over to you. >> brian: more hard evidence about the obama administration's response or lack thereof to the benghazi attack. the chairman wrote the letter to president obama asking hymn a series of questions. did you pacificly direct the military to move available asset in libya to insure the safety of the american personnel in benghazi? and is and and so what did you order for libya. judge napolitano, judge, he's not getting worries . we can ask all of the questions but the president is not answering. >> he's right. he is not going to answer until after election day. dudirect susan rice, un ambassador to the united nations to lie and mislead the american public as to the cause of this? were you aware that this being attacked? were you aware of the plea for help and were you aware that this was orchestred by a terrorist group with military precision in which the consulate was attacked could not be random act. >> brian: senator mccain said it is worse than watergate because people died. >> he is right. >> brian: magnitude of this is cover up?
and barack obama's come around to the bush administration's policy on aggression overseas but don't worry, people. >> the foreign policy debate of the three debates i assume this will be the least watched of the three. >> so many voters in recent polls have said they don't care anything about foreign policy. >> yes or no, this debate matter? >> i don't think so. (laughter) >> jon: we'll be right back. (cheers and applause) (cheers and applause). >> jon: with the third debate out of the way campaign now enters its final phase so we turn to john oliver and aasif mandvi, they've been following the two campaigns. time for the end game. gentlemen, how are you? (cheers and applause) you two have been on the bus with both campaigns. these campaigns are finally making their closing statements of this election. john oliver, let's start with you. what is obama campaign's closing speech and pitch to the american people? >> simply this, john. the obama camp feels the choice is simple. maybe obama hasn't been the president you wanted him to be. perhaps he didn't meet the high expectations he set himse
made more attempts to -- do you believe the obama administration mishandled this leading up to the attack and what could have been done better and should be done better going forward? >> absolutely it was mishandled and to learn there were cries for help, literally people asking for additional support and that they went unanswered, that's unacceptable. when we get back to washington, we will conduct oversight hearings and make sure our ambassadors and the conflicts are protected. we have to make sure they have what they need and the republican leadership at $300 million from embassy security. we need to make sure we have the resources and protection they need. i don't think there is any other explanation other than it was not handled properly -- was not handled properly and i believe the congress's oversight capacity needs to make sure this doesn't happen again. it is challenging many going to these other countries but on the anniversary of my/loan, we should have been on heightened security. i would make sure those abroad to support our interest and other countries and try
obama addressed allegations that the administration has been misleading the american people. >> i take offense that in any way we haven't tried to make sure that the american people knew and information was coming in. what we believed happened. >> kimberly: there will be hearings about this. >> that wasn't the question. the question is did you or did you not turn down additional support and assets to four of the americans who were pinned down taking fire? hold on. mr. woods makes a good point. why we probably have done this every day. one of those days someone will come out and tell us about a discussion they had that tells us exactly what happened. >> kimberly: president obama says we don't leave anybody behind but we did in benghazi. you have want do a press conference about that. shameless. >> bob: with all due respect the father. it can understand him being upset. the idea from a drone photograph you can tell what is going on, on the ground and further more you can hear cries from help is not possible. the idea in the white house they watched this realtime through smoke and flame i
. the public health department will do further tests. >>> minutes ago president obama spoke from the red cross headquarters. promising staff delivery to victims of super storm sandy. the message to his administration, no red tape. >> we will do everything we can to get resourceses to you and make sure that any unmet need is identified. we are responding to it as quickly as possible. i told the mayors and governors ring if they are getting no somewhere in the federal government, they can call me personally. >> the nation's capitol remains shut down. winds an rain have subsided. and ktvu scott mcfarland hags been tracking the storm's path much joins us live from washington, d.c. >> this city is emerging. slowly emerging. on d street, across the street from the u.s. capitol. the white truck that's about to drive by. >> traffic is light. all of that said, the u.s. government is poised to reopen tomorrow. >>> picking up lint and debris. cameras were found down the washington monument. 36 hours after the first raindrops fell, the major roads are passible again. and some flights have resumed in washi
in an effective way, ihink th's to president obama's benefit. not only does its make his administration look competent but it makes the case for a government role, the role of government has been one of the fundamental debates between these two candidates. if the federal response does not look so competent we've seen how devastating that can be for incumbent presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and orge w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially invisible. he can't look like he's tryi donythg to eplo the olits of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican
by their numbers that are going to cripple us as, quote, big government. >> "wall street journal," barack obama -- when the history of this administration is written, maybe someone will note the difference. here is that man who promised a transformative presidency, and it amounted to a two-prong attempt to impose from one side a version of european social democracy by way of obama care. and from the other side a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we k
the obama administration have a problem callling it terror? >> >> stephen: why didn't they call it terror right away? and don't you miss the bush administration, when we knew exactly how afraid to be thanks to a color-coded scale that changed based on threats they often wouldn't explain? hey, what's that noise? did you hear something? don't you feel safer now that i've told you there might be something to be afraid of? or are we not scared enough of terror because president obama might not be telling us enough to be terrified about? did i have time to wash my hands just now? it didn't seem like it, did it? speaking of filth, are there more heinous assertions we could be pulling out of our ass? >> here's the other question. and there are so many other questions we need to ask -- did we trade off-- and i have no evidence of this-- did we trade off the life of our ambassador and three other americans for that crowd? -- were these people expendable as part of a mideast foreign policy? >> stephen: while we're throwing around accusations with no evidence, what was president obama's role in 9/11
are wondering when this comes. this is barack obama's katrina moment. for gorge bush hurricane katrina was a significant turning point in undermining his aura as you say with the public because there was a mismatch between what his administration was saying and what people could see on their television sets. so for barack obama he has got to get this right, because otherwise people will see this as political disaster and another point, you know, he has got to make sure that this isn't politicized. >> jennifer: how do you do that when you are one week before an election? >> sure. i think he has done a good job of reaching out to both republican and democratic governors and mayors. george bush -- his administration provided some help to republican governors that democratic governors didn't get. new orleans wasn't included in the federal state of emergency. >> jennifer: and james do you think, first of all that the decision to halt the campaigns, for example, that is a no-brainer, right? >> yeah absolutely. and i think particularly in the case of obama talking to f
no to that pipeline, i will never know. >> obama: we have opened up public plans. we're drilling more on public lands than the previous administration and the previous president was an oil man. >> romney: more drilling and more permits and licenses. >> obama: we made the largest investment in clean coal technology. >> romney: in the last four years you cut lances on federal land and waters in half. >> obama: not true. >> romney: how much did you cut them. >> obama: not true. governor, we produced more oil. >> cenk: yeah, i'm more pro-oil more pro-coal and then i brag that i drill more than president bush. and then bragging how romney isn't pro coal enough. i was. >> listening to governor romney talking about how he was the champion of coal. when he was the governor, he stood in front of a coal fire plant and said this plant kills people. now he's running around talking like he's mr. coal. come on. come on. you know that's not on the level. does anybody ever actually look at that guy and think he's really into coal? >> cenk: ha, ha, ha, romney is not into coal enough. if you elect an democrat we'll re
